Yes. Click on nav rad on the CDU. You can enter both ILS, VOR (both including radials) and NDB's. Be aware that as IRL the 777 is unable to lock on a VOR radial. That's done with the CDU, but is not yet implemented in FG.

What I mean is that I cannot enter at same time VOR and ILS, because there is no option for ILS.

I think when you turn the dial, on the cockpit, from VOR to APP, it should set the ILS's frequency, like in the Airbus.

I am not familiar with the real 777's CDU, so I 'm not certain of its capabilities. It is certainly different from the A320 and it 's also not the same as the 737, as there is no radial dial in the 777's cockpit, that's all done from the CDU. I think you mean the ND's display dial, but I 'm not certain that it's tied to the CDU IRL. The current implementation does work, but its indeed very basic and could use some attention. Sidi762 has been doing some work on the CDU, but I don't know how far he stands atm and if he is still working on it. There's a lot to be done in the 777. Please do feel free to contribute in any way you can ;-)

Kind regards,

Isaak

Isaak,
It is needed separate. To fix this you'd have to add a third nav radio and dme, which must be set-up manually because FG Won't do it for you, then you can definite it. I usually do [0] for ils, [1] for ils2 (if needed but its there just in case), [2] for VOR1 and [3] for VOR2.

Kind Regards,
Josh
